Woodville, Timpson, and Tenaha Highlighted on Friday Night Frenzy
Get Ready for Week Three
We're getting ready for another great night of high school football, and, of course, we'll cover it all with the KICKS 105 Friday Night Frenzy powered by Kelly's Truck Parts.
One of our games of the week from last Friday proved to be GAME OF THE WEEK, as the Woodville Eagles scored a one-point upset over the Newton Eagles 23-22. Watch out for Woodville this year, they are stout. In fact, they were great enough to make our You So Totally Rock Top Ten Teams of the Night, which we'll get to in just a bit.
Once again, we'll be providing the most comprehensive list and update of high school football scores in Deep East Texas, sponsored by Truss & Son Plumbing.
The KICKS 105 Friday Night Football Frenzy airs from 9 - 11 pm and is full of features celebrating football and those who make Friday nights special. Let's take a look back and a look ahead.
FNF Game of the Week Powered by East Texas Slab Masters
Last week, we presented three games in our game of the week segment, but the only game that lived up to the hype was the Newton/Woodville game. This week we will once again feature 3 games of the week.
#1 TIMPSON @ #2 DAINGERFIELD
By far, this game stands out to be this Friday's most anticipated in all of East Texas. The Timpson Bears are on a quest to bring home a state championship this year, and they have started well with back-to-back wins. Thanks to losses by Refugio and Shiner, Timpson finds themselves as the number one team in the state in Class 2A - Division One. Daingerfield is ranked 2nd in the state in Class 3A - Division Two. They are also undefeated early in the season.
I think the Bears take this game...just too much offensive firepower. Daingerfield may stay close for the first half, but I'm going with a final score of:
Timpson - 41....Daingerfield - 21
#9 TENAHA @ JOAQUIN
The Tenaha Tigers are ranked #9 in the state in Class 2A - Division 2. They have had close wins against West Sabine and San Augustine. Meanwhile, the Rams blasted Arp to start the season before falling in a nailbiter to state powerhouse, Beckville.
Joaquin comes from the same district as West Sabine and San Augustine, but the rams are a big step up in competition from what Tenaha has faced so far this year. I think the Rams win in a high scoring game:
Joaquin 33...Tenaha 27
LUFKIN @ #3 A&M CONSOLIDATED
The Panthers have checked the boxes in turning things around from last year's season. Lufkin was been impressive in their wins against Tyler Legacy and Nacogdoches. But, how will they stack up against the #3 team in Class 5A - Division One? The Tigers, who will be playing their 3rd straight home game, have blown by Huntsville and a high school team from Mexico so far this year.
I'll be pulling the Pack to pull off this upset, but I'm going to have to go with stats over emotion.
A&M Consolidated 34...Lufkin 23
